Right now, experts don't see a big move towards replacing a business websites with Facebook Pages-even within the next five years. The big shift is in integrating the two.
Even Facebook agrees. According to the social networking giant, potentially, dynamic Facebook Pages could replace static websites for small businesse, but Facebook says most businesses use the social networking platform in conjunction with their own website for maximum reach and exposure.
Kim said that it's a good idea to use Facebook as part of an integrated presence but would recommend that business owners not use it as their only source of online business presence.
"You can have it to connect to people but first and foremost the relationship is built between the user and the Facebook platform, not your company," he said.
He also said that a business should have a website and use tools, like Facebook Connect, to take advantage of the connections, sharing and the social graph that's created, but you still have that focused relationship with customers on your own business website.
